The purpose of the event is to build competence in in radiation protection and the safety of radiation sources through both theoretical and practical training. The course will be held in Arabic.

  • Planned exposure situations (general requirements; non-medical applications, medical applications), emergency exposure situations, existing exposure situations, and training the trainers.

Participants are expected to carry out a work project, which  provides the opportunity to apply the competence acquired within the course. The project should be aimed at solving a specific radiation protection problem in their home country and participants are expected to present their project at the end of the course.
